Bioscience Concentration - Accelerated Program

The Accelerated Program is only for qualified Pathways Honors students who are majoring in the Health Sciences with a BioScience concentration, and who have been accepted into an accelerated 3+ College of Science and Health pre-professional program. In order to pursue one of the pre-professional Accelerated Program tracks, a student must coordinate carefully with the Pre-Health Advisor and Pre-Health Advising Committee's (PAC) Accelerated Program advisor (email CSHPreHealth@depaul.edu for information). Once accepted to an accelerated program, students may declare one of the concentrations below. There are pre-professional Accelerated Programs in Nursing (3+2) at DePaul University and in Medicine (3+4), Pathologists' Assistant (3+2), Pharmacy (3+4), Physical Therapy (3+3), Physician Assistant (3+2), and Podiatry (3+4) at Rosalind Franklin University.

Students formally accepted into an Accelerated Program will complete their fourth year of coursework at their professional school and apply the credit toward their Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences at DePaul. Students must apply for degree conferral via Campus Connect by the deadline outlined in the Student Handbook in order to be considered a candidate for earning their Bachelor of Science degree at the conclusion of their fourth year of study. Depending on the program in question, some Liberal Studies Program courses, Health Sciences major requirements, and open electives will be fulfilled by professional degree courses. To avoid earning duplicate credit for some courses, students must meet regularly with the Pre-Health Advisor and the Health Sciences departmental academic advisor. Please visit the Pathways Honors Program site for more information about eligibility requirements.
